SUNY, Old Westbury, is fortunate to have a very engaged and involved School of Business Advisory Board. Several of the members are proud alums and routinely offer internship and employment opportunities to our students. During our meetings, it was identified that our students could benefit from soft skills training that showcases the education and abilities of our students to potential employers. Based on the “Secrets of the Young and Successful,” by EYP creator Jennifer Kushell, the Advisory Board and our faculty evaluated the “Exploring Your Potential,” program for our students. We decided to pilot the program which is being sponsored by the School of Business Advisory Board. This is an excellent example of a Missional innovation that engages our students, alums, faculty, and industry practitioners, in increasing the impact of the education received by our graduates.

Our students’ final assignment is writing a reflection paper sharing the tools learned in the course, including EYP. Students not only enjoyed the modules, but many experienced very deep self-reflections and found new motivation.

EYP graduates gain confidence, clarity and know what they want from their careers and their lives. EMPOWER students to manifest their dreams into reality.

EYP helps you understand your career potential in the context of global possibilities. It shapes and broadens your perspectives so that when it comes to finding employment or making career choices, you are more capable, proactive, and independent in your efforts. It really helped me stay determined to graduate.

When I first participated in the Exploring Your Potential virtual bootcamp, I was unemployed and looking for a job. The classes improved my self-confidence and helped me get hired into to my position now! Today I work at a Cancer Hospital in Brazil and we recently traveled to USA to visit hospitals like Johns Hopkins, do some benchmarking, and take part in a conference. What more can I say? Exploring your Potential makes the difference in our lives!

Through EYP’s step-by-step courses, various professional insights, and a platform of fellow learners, I gained a broader viewpoint of the opportunities in the world and clarity of who I want to become. Thank you for providing a supportive environment and for passing down some of the most impactful talks I have listened to.

The advice I learned from Exploring Your Potential inspired and motivated me to get out there more, apply for jobs and seize opportunities. It gave me a greater sense of confidence when interviewing, and helped me clarify why I wanted a supply chain job in the automotive industry. Four months after I completed the program, I landed a job at Tesla!
